The world was little prepared when the coronavirus storm hit; a storm that would not clear, a storm that knew no boundaries, traveled to all points on the compass, a storm that spared no countries, no cultures, no people; a global storm of biblical proportions. Over six million people have died, over a million in the United States alone. The world is desperate for skies clear of infection. Raincoats in the form of vaccines and boosters are available but they wear out with time, and people are tired of wearing them so many continue to get sick and die. Hard work and diligence are the answers, an answer no one wants to hear.

    IRS Fails Audit of Trump's Tax Returns (American Issues Take One)

    Mandatory Audit Ignored with No Reasons why. The hosts for this show are Tim Apicella and Jay Fidell. The guest is Cynthia Lee Sinclair. Trump often told the American public he would like to share his tax returns if he wasn't under audit by the IRS. His refusal to do so turned into years of legal fighting. However, the recent Supreme Court decision which required the release of those returns to the Democratic Ways and Means Committee revealed an important fact- he was not being audited by the IRS. Trump's response to the delivery of six years of his tax returns to the committee resulted in a warning that this SCOTUS decision will create an atmosphere of open hostilities which will require President Joe Biden to share his tax returns. The fact that President Biden has already shared his tax returns makes Trump's dire threats look irrelevant and points out, yet again, Trump is uninformed. The main takeaways from the Trump tax returns release are discussed by the panel.

Gunk or debris accumulate in the drains such as dirt, grease, soap scum, hair, clumped paper (to name a few) or just sediment from the pipes. Wet wipes disposed into the sewer lines are another big headache that have caused blockages and sewer backups into homes, leading to very costly repairs to include sanitizing the area. Sewer maintenance can involve the use of a camera to identify the blockage as it could be tree roots, too.

    Legislative Bills Addressing Bottlenecks. The hosts for this show are Jay Fidell and Tom Yamachika. Last year's Legislature approved $600 million to our Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) to reduce the monstrous waiting list of Hawaiians waiting for homestead lands. The catch, however, is that DHHL needs to spend the money, or enter into a contract to spend it, by June 30, 2025. Otherwise, the money goes back to the general fund. On December 6, 2022, DHHL published a strategic plan to accomplish this lofty goal. In that plan, it noted that Act 279, SLH 2022, the legislative act appropriating the money, also required the agency to submit to the legislature by December 10th any proposed legislation that the agency considered necessary or desirable. The legislative proposals, although they may be thought of as a wish list, seem to take direct aim at several key items that impede housing development today.
